Interesting Facts

1 While at Princeton, he performed with the an Acappella group the Princeton Tigertones.
2 He released his screenplay for Stoker (2013) under the pseudonym of "Ted Foulke". The reason behind that was because Miller wanted that his first screenplay worked in the industry by itself and not for being written by a famous actor. Only when the film began his shooting he allowed to be credited with is real name.
3 Grew up in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
4 Is a very big comic book fan and finally got a chance to play a character when cast as The Flash's enemy Captain Cold in ''The Flash (2014)''.
5 Taking a long awaited rest after working 14 hours a day for 10 months in 4 straight years on Prison Break (2005). [September 2009]
6 In 2007, Miller gave an interview to the German edition of InStyle Magazine in which the interviewer asked him if the rumors that he is gay were true. Miller responded, "I'm not gay, but that rumor can't be killed. I'd like to have a girlfriend and a family. But I haven't met the right one yet. Until then I'm focusing on my job. I had to wait so long for this chance [the lead role in the TV show "Prison Break"] I savor every second on set even if it means 14 hours of shooting a day." However, in 2013, Miller released an open letter to the organizers of a Russian film festival to which he had been invited, declining because of an anti-gay law that had recently been passed in Russia and a rise in homophobic violence there. His letter read, in part, " would make me happy to say yes. However, as a gay man, I must decline. I am deeply troubled by the current attitude toward and treatment of gay men and women by the Russian government. The situation is in no way acceptable, and I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.".
7 He refused an invitation to a film festival in Russia because of the country's new laws banning homosexual "propaganda," and then outed himself. The 41-year-old star sent a letter to the organizers of the festival stating "as a gay man, I must decline." Miller said that he is troubled by the current attitude, and went on to state: "I cannot in good conscience participate in a celebratory occasion hosted by a country where people like myself are being systematically denied their basic right to live and love openly.".
8 He named his five favorite films as The Shining (1980), Carrie (1976), Time Bandits (1981), Jesus Christ Superstar (1973) and Bullets Over Broadway (1994).
9 He is named after his grandfather and father. All three Wentworths were named after Captain Wentworth (a character in Jane Austen's book "Persuasion"). It was his paternal great-grandmother's idea.
10 Was born in the United Kingdom but he insists that he is a complete American.
11 Around the time of Dinotopia (2002), Wentworth's parents were in the process of divorce.
12 Was one of People Magazine's 100 Most Beautiful People in the World (2007).
13 According to the special features on the Prison Break (2005) DVD, he auditioned for Superman/Clark Kent when the project was still in Brett Ratner's hands.
14 His tattoos for the series Prison Break (2005) are a 4 hour make-up process.
15 He is allergic to cats and dogs as well as certain foods.
16 A snippet of Wentworth's guest star role on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997), "Go Fish" Season 2, (Episode 20: 5 May 1998), is used in the montage of images in the opening credits for the third season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997).
17 He has two younger sisters, Gillian and Leigh. Gillian is studying to get her Ph.D in Massachusetts and Leigh is in law school in Virginia.

Wentworth's maternal grandmother, Mildred Emiliya Hawaka, was the daughter of Nicholas Hawaka (an Austrian immigrant) and Florence Busczniewicz (who had Polish ancestry).
22 Graduated from Princeton University with a degree in English.


1 I'm hoping that what I am or what I'm not ethnically doesn't limit me in anyone else's eyes. I guarantee you it doesn't in mine.
2 Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997) was a terrific show and Sarah Michelle Gellar was terrific in it. It's really difficult straddling that line between drama and comedy, action and romance, sci-fi and reality and Sarah did it beautifully -- on who he feels are underrated actors.
3 I don't get a chance to watch much. On DVD Oz (1997), Reno 911! (2003) and Family Guy (1999) are definitely in the top 10. I did manage to squeeze in an entire The Surreal Life (2003) marathon on VH-1 one weekend. I just couldn't turn it off. I felt dirty, but in a good way -- on what are his favorite TV shows.
4 I have a little fantasy where in the last episode of the season, we slip into the prison's sewer system, up through the grate, and pop out a hatch - and we're face to face with Matthew Fox and spend season 2 on a tropical beach - jokingly linking his show, Prison Break (2005) to Lost (2004).
5 When asked what character from literature he would like to play: "Well, if we can expand the definition of literature to include comic books, I'd definitely love a crack at "General Zod" from "Superman". So I'm hoping that Bryan Singer makes a sequel to the "Superman" that's coming out and casts me" (TV Guide, April 10-16,2006).
6 "I made a decision not to work out because I'm lazy and also, the character is not a superhero. I didn't want him to be a buff guy with Jackie Chan moves because the point is he's smarter than your average Joe"
  • on playing "Michael Scofield" with his regular physique.
7 "I'm kind of a dork. I don't have much game. I'm not particularly comfortable in bars or clubs. I much prefer being home playing Scrabble, having dinner with a couple friends, going to see a movie, or losing a whole weekend to Season 14 of Law & Order (1990) or The Simpsons (1989).
8 My father is black and my mother is white. Therefore, I could answer to either, which kind of makes me a racial Lone Ranger, caught between two communities.
9 "My experience is that I find myself having to constantly define myself to others, day-in, day-out. The quote that's helped me the most through that is from Toni Morrison's "Beloved" where she says, "Definitions belong to the definers, not the defined" - so I find myself defining myself for other people lest I be defined by others and stuck into some box where I don't particularly belong".
10 The show is completely preposterous. But that aside, it's a great ride.
11 You might look at my CV and see I've had 12 jobs, but I've been to over 450 auditions so I've heard 'no' a lot more than I've heard 'yes'. So if I go in looking only to meet my own standards, then that will make taking that rejection a little bit easier. And when I do get that job it will seem like icing on the cake.
12 When I got to college, acting suddenly seemed like a very risky proposition and all my friends were going to law school or med school or Wall Street.
